Only flaw seems to be a small amount of backlight bleed at edge of frame.
nice sharp matte finish.
22" is a better size for 1680 x1050. It's about €200 for the 1920x1080
24" (or is it a 1200?)
The user has that PC for Media Player, Sat TV, Games, some text editing
and a bit of web browsing with a laptop for real work.
Any rate for "Full HD" for a living room you really want > 37",
ideally about 60" for 8ft viewing distance. For 1.5' distance
(Monitor) then at 1920x1200 a 24" is big.
I'm quite happy with 1600x1200 @ 15.4" (4:3) on my laptop, the
16:10 version of same pixel pitch would be about 17". Previous model was
1400 x 1050 @ 15".
1024 x 768 (4:3) or 1366 x 768 (same height 16:9) I find "low res"
for Linux GUI and verging on awkward on Windows.
I have to read a lot of PDFs and Scrolls are so pre 2nd Century. I
prefer whole page at a time. 1200 lines just manages that.
Unfortunately 1600x1200 laptops are rare now. I really don't need WS or 17".
